Divorce and Family Law
Springfield, Missouri Family Law Attorneys
Divorce – Custody – Support – Alimony
Divorce affects many lives beyond those of the parties, especially when children are involved. At Whiteaker & Wilson, our lawyers help clients cope with the many issues arising from divorce.
We represent clients in matters involving:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Marital property division
- Spousal maintenance (alimony)
- Modifications of child custody and support stipulations
- Rights of unmarried parents regarding child custody and visitation
- And others
Child custody and support matters can cause particular concern. Disputes over child custody sometimes mask other problems that plagued the marriage or continue after the parties have separated or divorced. As divorce lawyers representing our clients in this delicate area, we find that we often must dig down into the facts of the situation in order to achieve a positive outcome for our clients. The chemical dependency of a party, a party’s lifestyle, and the financial and psychological state of a party can all affect the resolution of a child custody matter. While always focusing on the best interests of the children, we also strive to preserve the rights of our clients in matters of child custody and support.
In practicing as a divorce lawyer in the Springfield, Missouri area over many years, one sees every type of situation. Parental kidnappings, fierce custody disputes, filing a child support lien, obtaining emergency relief for a client – all require an attorney who will affirm the rights of the client.
At Whiteaker & Wilson, we always seek to assert our clients’ rights in matters of family law. We are dedicated to obtaining positive outcomes for our clients, so they and their children can face the future with hope.
The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.
